Sports – Girls Rugby

Our Girls Rugby Team having been competing in the ASS Rugby 10 a side competition this year and have played 5 games and have lost 1. Currently the girls sit 3rd in their pool with 2 round robin games to go.

On Monday saw the girls play Onehunga High School who are currently placed second in the pool. It was a tough match with Otahuhu College getting out to an early 12 -0 lead with tries to Nerisa Tafau and Henrietta Uolo. Onehunga fought back to level the scores late in the second half 17-17 this was aided by a charge down of the conversion by Moana Uiese to keep the scores level. A last ditch effort by the Otahuhu College girls saw Christina Lolesio score in the corner right on fulltime to give Otahuhu College a win 22-17.

The girls will have one more game before the holidays against Marcellin College and are hoping for another win before earning a well-earned break.
